Republican Gov. Mary Fallin has signed a pair of bills intended to further restrict abortion in Oklahoma.
Fallin on Wednesday signed a bill that makes it a felony for doctors to perform abortions after a woman reaches 20 weeks of pregnancy.
The "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act" presumes a fetus can experience pain after 20 weeks. It includes an exemption for abortions performed when the life of the mother is at risk or if there is a risk of physical impairment of a "major bodily function."
Jordan Goldberg, a spokeswoman for New York-based Center for Reproductive Rights, says the measure is a "very intrusive, extreme law."
The second bill prohibits health insurance plans in Oklahoma offered under the new federal health care law from offering coverage for elective abortions.
